Experience fast and test Canon EOS R: strange but familiar – VnReview


The first mirrorless Full Frame from Canon, EOS R is expected to help Japanese camera company regain its position in the mirrorless camera segment, which has been surpassed by rivals like Sony, Fujfilm for many years. .

On the occasion of the official launch of its first Mirrorless Full Frame, Canon EOS R, Canon held a tour of its "headquarters" located in Shimomaruko district, Tokyo, Japan as well as a manufacturing factory. Their lenses in Utsunomiya.

In this sky, I have the opportunity to experience the Canon EOS R with 2 RF lenses 24-105mm f / 4 L IS USM and RF 35mm f / 1.8 macro IS STM for about 5 days. Here are my quick experiences with Canon's first mirrorless Full Frame. All photos in the post are original images, only resize to reduce capacity, no further editing.

The first impression when using Canon EOS R is the feeling of being very familiar to those who have used Canon cameras. You will almost be able to get acquainted immediately in a short time thanks to the layout of the keys, the rotation has become a tradition of Japanese camera firms.

Canon EOS R has the same design as Canon's DSLR series so far so it's easy to get used to

Of course, there will be 2 new details that will make you a little confused as the Control Ring rotation on the lens and the Multi-function bar touch bar. I usually set up the Control Ring ring for adjusting ISO and Multi-function slider to change focus mode, turn on and off Eye AF focus on each situation. Over the past few days, I was able to familiarize myself with these two novel controls.

The speed of the EOS R is really impressive. The whole process of starting, locking focus, shooting and showing images takes place at a glance. The ability to customize the focus almost completely covers the entire sensor, while also being able to shoot on the EVF, and can select the focus on the touch-screen LCD to provide a truly versatile layout. I almost no longer need to use focus lock techniques and move the composition.

Even in dark conditions, the human eye is difficult to see clearly, the EOS R can still focus quickly, the rate of distortion is very low. Eye AF eye focus mode works reliably, can stick to the eyes even if the model does not look directly at the lens, looking sideways or looking diagonally. As a result, portrait photos with the EOS R always achieve accurate definition.

Continuous shooting speed of 8 frames / sec of EOS R in single focus mode and 5 images / second when focusing continuously but not too fast but just enough to be able to capture photo shoot of fashion and street style with sample walk at a moderate pace. When shooting continuously, the face tracking feature is still usable but unfortunately Eye AF's focus tracking feature is not supported in this mode yet. The EOS Tracking AF capability of EOS R is quite at a low rate of low definition.

Noise is very well controlled. Even when pushing ISO to 32000, noise is still acceptable and can be used in small size. Only at ISO from 40000, new noise started to appear strong, details of the image were broken.

The convenient flip screen with the Canon EOS R 24mm focal length when combined with the 24-105mm f / 4 L RF lens can bring high quality selfie photos even in very low light conditions. Photos taken at aperture of f / 8, speed 1/60, ISO 25600.

2 RF lenses of 24-105mm f / 4 L and RF 35mm f / 1.8 macros are all satisfied with the fast execution speed, precise focus, sharp image details, soft colors characteristic of the solid Canon's signature so far, especially human skin color. These are also the two most compact lenses in a set of four new RF lenses for Canon EOS R. They are suitable for street photography, travel, travel much thanks to mobility, weight, moderate size.

The EOS R becomes quite compact when attached to the RF 35mm f / 1.8 macro lens

The 35mm f / 1.8 macro RF tube with a minimum focusing distance of 17cm, 0.5x magnification helps create impressive macro images, floating details, separation. While RF 24-105mm f / 4 L is a versatile All in One lens, suitable for all situations like brothers EF 24-105mm f / 4 L on Canon DSLRs, but compact a little lighter. This promises to become the mainstream choice of EOS R users in the future thanks to good balance between mobility, image quality and versatility.

Only one point to note in the 35mm f / 1.8 macro RF lens is that the focus mechanism in the form of an indentation will create a rather loud noise, especially in quiet spaces. The lens also focuses hard and can be misleading in backlit situations.

I have not had a chance to thoroughly experience the 4K video recording capabilities of the EOS R, but a few short test videos show that Canon was really serious about the ability to shoot movies of this mirrorless Full Frame model. Details, colors, bright bands, ability to stick to sharpness and sharpness are impressive results. The ability to automatically balance the light when switching from dark to bright areas can completely satisfy professional hands. The vibration resistance on an effective lens is ready to make you forget that the EOS R has no anti-vibration on the body.

Above are my quick comments after a short experience of Canon EOS R. Further evaluation of Canon EOS's performance, image quality, video recording will be sent to readers after a while. experience more carefully.

Success
